Our first introduction to Omar
R. Smith | Viola, Iowa USA | 05/16/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hard Times is Omar's first major label release for Columbia and he probaly got signed on due to a certain somebody named Stevie Ray Vaughn. The title track got some airplay on MTV (back when MTV actually showed videos and not second rate garbage as Blink 182's Drummer and Wife) which got me interested to buy this album. The album is chock full of some of that Louisana via Texas hoodoo blues and rock with highlights such as the Howling Wolf soundalike, Don't You Know That I Love You, Creedence type of rock such as Shadow Man, and You Ain't Fooling Nobody and tex mex sounding Don't You Rock Me The Wrong Way. Double Trouble keyboardist Reese Wynans helps out as well. Tastefully recorded, it's one of the undiscovered gems of the 80s. Grade B+"
Raw Texas Blues
Snotter | United States | 11/16/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bought this "CD" on cassette tape when it originally released.
I'm happy to see it's now on CD. Nice original songwriting with coarse, butt kicking delivery. Fans of SRV would probably like this. Give it a listen."
Howl omar, howl

"good cd. omar's deep growling voice, the rough edge to the delta-meets-texas blues, some hard driving songs. they have their mojo working on this disc."
